This is your reminder not to give in to something you know is wrong or won’t work. You may not even need reminding. After all you have a feeling of firm conviction about a certain issue. But time and pressure can eventually wear anyone down under certain circumstances - even a tenacious crab like you, Moonchild. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel that you are wrong about a recent choice or decision. You felt very strongly about this from the get-go (and you have every right to), and nothing has changed. Don’t give in.
Take a look in the mirror, Moonchild. You will see a new you looking back. It may be subtle at first, but there is something very different about you. Where you were once feeling drained and uninspired, you are slowly feeling a wave of power and energy. You are beginning to dream again, and to believe that it is truly possible to make your dreams come true. No matter how old you are, you may find a new youthfulness in your eyes, greater hope in your voice, and greater love in your spirit. Maintain this, and nothing can stop you.

This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find … themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. … they mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated.
Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.
Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? … Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”
Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe … life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path." -
